Volt Could Receive 100 MPG Rating From EPA
General Motors Corp. has reached agreement with the California Air Resources Board that could result in the Chevrolet Volt range-extended electric vehicle receiving a 100 mpg fuel economy rating from the EPA, the company said.
GM spokesman Dee Allen said the rating is far from set, stressing that what has been agreed to on a preliminary basis is that the Volt would be classified as an extended-range electric vehicle for the purpose of fuel-economy ratings.
If that is made certain, he said, then the Volt, due out in November 2010, could would likely receive a rating of 100 miles per gallon or better.
